This extremely rare, 6.2 inch long Slender Luminous 6 Flower Petal 144 Facet Master Cut Vogel Phi Crystal Healing Wand, weighing 9.6 ounces, or 273 grams, was cut by Brazilian Crystal Cutter and Healer Ray Pinto, and is extraordinary in every way. We got this amazing new Vogel Wand from Ray in February 2023.
This amazing professional lightworker's tool is large but because it was cut according to principles of sacred geometry, this wand fits comfortably in the hand and works well during long meditations or energy treatments.
The female termination tip of this Vogel crystal looks like a small pyramid, because this wand was cut to mimic the proportions of the Great Pyramid at Giza, which is thought to be a mammoth antenna and amplifier for Universal Life Force Energy, built with Phi ratio proportionality.
Ray inscribed this gorgeous 144 facet Vogel Wand with a six-petaled flower on the female termination tip, a testimony to Ray's unparalleled craftsmanship. The six-petaled flower also serves an important energetic function -- enhancing the flow of Universal Life Force energy from the palm chakra of the individual using the wand, and thus increasing the flow of this healing energy through the wand.
This beautiful water-clear Vogel wand has sufficient clarity for use in shamanic healing practices using the techniques taught by Alberto Villoldo. Jane and I have had the nine Munayki empowerments and we have provided Vogel wands to a number of Villoldo's students, and we feel confident that this powerful Vogel wand would be a valuable addition to any shamanic practitioner's toolkit.
This gorgeous Vogel wand is a professional Lightworker's tool, a technologically advanced precision instrument for receiving, amplifying and transmitting Universal Life Force Energy, which was created with modern technology utilizing the Ancient Wisdom Teachings of Sacred Geometry as taught in the Egyptian and Greek Mystery Schools.
The History of Vogel Healing Wands
This precision light instrument, with a unique cut based upon the specifications of legendary scientist and crystal healer Marcel Vogel, is a powerful subtle energy tool, and can be used for many kinds of healing work as well as for meditation.
Marcel Vogel worked for IBM for 27 years doing research and development. He developed the magnetic coating for IBM’s disc drive, which acts as the storage unit for a computer's memory, he created the first liquid crystal displays, or LCDs.
From his experimental work with crystals, Vogel learned that by pointing a crystal at another person, the crystal would amplify the person’s thoughts and emotions. This often also led to putting the individual into an altered state of consciousness. The next step was for Vogel to utilize the quartz crystals for therapeutic purposes.
“The crystal is a neutral object whose inner structure exhibits a state of perfection and balance,” according to crystal researcher Marcel Vogel, a senior scientist with IBM for 27 years. “When it's cut to the proper form and when the human mind enters into relationship with its structural perfection, the crystal emits a vibration which extends and amplifies the powers of the human mind. Like a laser, it radiates energy in a coherent, highly concentrated form, and this energy may be transmitted into objects or people at will.”
Marcel Vogel sought to use the power of science and of the lapidary arts to perfect crystalline forms of nature in order to maximize their potential for receiving, amplifying and transmitting Universal Life Force Energy charged with the intent to heal and with the force of love. Vogel cut his crystals to harmonize with the natural quartz structure to enhance the energetic properties of the wand for healing purposes, and the result is also aesthetically pleasing.
In his early experiments with cutting healing crystals, which he conducted for many years, Marcel Vogel saw the Kabbalistic Tree of Life in a dream, which is shaped very much like four sided crystal wand with double termination tips. He created his first wands in that shape, and told the story of their origin in the crystal healing workshops he gave students around the world.
Model created by Robert Wang, from his book The Qabalistic Tarot
Energy and crystal healers prize Vogel cut quartz crystals to this day. The art of cutting crystals for use in healing requires extensive knowledge of the high art of jewel-cutting, an intuitive feel for the subtle energies involved, and an awareness of the needs of the energy healer who will be using the wand.
Faceted crystal wands claiming to be Vogel type crystals vary widely in quality, craftsmanship, and price.
The most important thing to remember in working with faceted crystals for healing is that the purpose of the faceting should be to amplify and transmit an increasingly coherent stream of energy to a subject.
Some hexagonal quartz crystal wands occur naturally with six more or less equilateral sides and more or less equal triangular termination facets. Energy healers discovered that these six sided wands amplified the energy being transmitted by the wand when the termination facets on the female end created a more obtuse angle and when the termination facets on the male end created a more acute angle.
In a naturally formed quartz crystal of somewhat irregular shape and symmetry, the energy within the crystal tends to move through the crystal in a less directed way than the Vogel style cuts.
But when a crystal had a very definite symmetry, especially the hexagonal symmetry, then the energy gathers in the larger, receptive end of the crystal, and if directed by a knowledgeable human hand, travels in a series of tighter and tighter concentric circles around the interior of the crystal, and down into the tip of the male end of the crystal, where it would be emitted as a much more coherent stream of energy.
Energy healers also discovered that when the sharp male tip of the healing wand is congruent with the C-axis of the crystal, exactly centered within the circle formed when you look head-on at the male end of the crystal, this made the energetic flow stronger and more coherent.
When the sharp tip on the female end of the crystal, where the six termination facets meet, is congruent with the C-axis of the crystal, exactly centered within the circle formed when you look head-on at the female end of the crystal, this made the energetic flow stronger and more coherent.
Total symmetry created the crystal healer's version of the laser beam, the highly cut and faceted Vogel crystal.
Marcel Vogel's healing wands were refined artistic versions of this well-known type of natural healing wands. Good Vogel wands should have precisely equal facets, good clarity, preferably 90% or more, a well-defined C-axis that runs parallel to the shaft, and termination tips centered in the very middle of the shaft. The male and female terminations should be sharp, and the male should be more acute than the female. The female termination should be larger than the male tip.
Over time, Marcel also designed 6, 8, 12 and 13 sided double terminated crystal healing wands and similar single terminated meditation crystals with a flat base. At first he and his family cut them and sold them to students of crystal healing. Later they involved other cutters as well.
Ray Pinto's brother Walber Pinto studied directly with Marcel Vogel, who is now deceased, and Ray and Walber have practiced crystal healing and precision cutting of crystal healing wands for decades. Their artisanship and dedication to energy healing is well known wherever Lightworkers gather throughout the world.
Since Marcel’s death in 1991, crystal designers and cutters like Ray Pinto and Drew Tousley, who was one of Marcel Vogel’s early cutters, have created healing crystal wands of new types with incredibly complex designs based upon principles of sacred geometry, which are still true to the basic ideas of Marcel Vogel.
Today, we have 24-sided, 33-sided, 44-sided, 88-sided 108-sided and 144-sided Kabbalistic crystal healing wands, cut in the highly geometrical style originated by Marcel Vogel.
In addition we have Dream Vogel wands, created by Ray Pinto after Marcel came to him in a dream in the early Nineteen Nineties.
And there are many more varieties of crystal healing wands emerging as we enter the 21st century. As we in America look back on the history of crystal healing in our country, we will continue to honor the work of Marcel Vogel and do our best to distribute the loving wisdom he offered his students during his lifetime.
Properties of the 144 Sided Vogel Wand
The 144 sided Vogel wand is an ideal instrument for use as a tool to amplify, focus and direct Universal Life Force energy across time and space, for use in healing treatments on individuals, large groups, large geographical areas, and in sending energy to the Earth’s energetic grids, the planet’s aura, which exists as a set of energy waves that manifest as patterns that conform to the forms of sacred geometry.
In addition, the 144 sided Vogel wand is ideal for energy work directed at the microscopic level, to effect changes at the DNA level of human functionality. That is the 144 sided Vogel wand can be used in meditation and energy healing treatments designed to remove ancient unwanted and unhealthy or unpleasant patterns of thought, behavior and feeling, and create new, healthy scripts for physical health, mental well-being and emotional equilibrium.
In meditation, the 144 sided Vogel wand is an ideal antenna that can be used to tune in directly to the Divine Source, because its sacred geometry corresponds to the vibrations of that Source, whose reflection we see in galaxies, angels, human beings, plants, flowers, and sacred art and architecture.
The 144 sided Vogel wand is thus one of the most versatile, powerful and truly Universal Vogel wands ever created.
The 144 sided Vogel wand is attuned to some of the most important of the sacred geometric forms that exist in the causal plane, and which manifest in our material Universe as the most basic forms of Nature, in both microcosm and macrocosm.
In many traditions of Judaeo-Christian mysticism, the Number 144 is a magical number that symbolizes conscious unity arising from complexity, and thus is symbolic of both macrocosm and microcosm.
Unity of the Microcosm and the Macrocosm, Robert Fludd
In addition, the number 144 represents Unity Consciousness, the self-reflective, transcendent aspect of the Divine.
Kabbalistic scholars say that the Hebrew name for Eden is “Mem Daleth Kuf”, which has a numerical value of 144.
According to Christian mysticism, the number one hundred expresses the Unit(y) of the divine world (the Unit(y) of God) 4 x 10 symbolizes the stability of the angelic world, 4 x (1) Unit symbolizes the eternal stability of the Holy City, whose form is precisely a cube. The Holy City represents material creation, our Universe.
In the Douay-Rheims Bible, in Revelation, we read how a new heaven and a new earth appeared after the destruction of the old creation at the end of days, and a New Jerusalem appears in the heavens as well.
John, the narrator of the Book of Revelation, explains how an angel took him for a heavenly tour of the New Jerusalem: “And he measured the wall thereof an hundred and forty-four cubits, the measure of a man, which is of an angel.” (Rev. 21:17).
Here the number 144 is identified as the measure of the macrocosm, the New Jerusalem, of the spiritual servants of the Lord, the angelic hosts, and of the creatures situated midway between the macrocosm and the microcosm, human beings.
Mathematicians know that 144 is a Fibonacci number. (0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233...) The ratio of each successive pair (5/3, 8/5, 233/144) equals phi, or 1.618033988749895.
Phi is known as the Golden Ratio, Section, or Mean. Graphed it is a spiral. The golden mean is not a number; it is a relationship, called a ratio.
The golden mean is one of the key elements of sacred geometry, and the spiral forms that exist in nature corresponding to the Fibonacci series can be found in plants, animals, DNA strands, many examples of sacred architecture, and even in the shape and structure of entire galaxies. The number of seeds in a sunflower, the petals of any flower, the arrangement of pine cones, the growth of a nautilus shell, etc...all follow the same pattern of these series.
Leonardo da Vinci, Albrecht Durer, Georges Seurat, Mondrian and countless other luminaries of Western art history all utilized the golden mean in their compositions.
Leonardo’s Vitruvian Man, composed in 1487, illustrates the fact that the human body (and the pentagram) is constructed in a constellation of harmonious parts conforming to the golden mean, a set of self-similar fractal structures based upon the phi ratio.
The overwhelming evidence indicates that the Fibonacci Series was known to the Ancient Egyptians. Many Ancient Egyptian plans of temples and tombs, throughout the history of Ancient Egypt, show along their longitudinal axis and transversely, dimensions in cubits of 1.72' (0.523 m), giving in consecutive terms the Fibonacci Series: (2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610, . . .)
The ancient Greeks knew of a rectangle whose sides are in the golden proportion (1 : 1.618 which is the same as 0.618 : 1). A construction for the golden section point is found in Euclid's Elements. The golden rectangle appears in many of the proportions of that famous ancient Greek temple, the Parthenon, in the Acropolis in Athens, Greece but there is no original documentary evidence that this was deliberately designed in.
Three of the five Platonic solids, the building blocks of the Universe, contain sections constructed from phi ratios. These are the octahedron, dodecahedron and icosahedron.
The golden mean, or golden number or divine proportion was a major obsession of Italian Renaissance artists, philosophers and mystics. Fra Luca Pacioli (1445-1517) in his Divina proportione (On Divine Proportion) wrote about the golden mean:
A M B
The line AB is divided at point M so that the ratio of the two parts, the smaller MB to the larger AM is the same as the ratio of the larger part AM to the whole AB.
Pacioli makes it clear that the golden mean is a fractal, a rough or fragmented geometric shape that can be split into parts, each of which is (at least approximately) a reduced-size copy of the whole, a property called self-similarity.
New Jerusalem, angel and human being, for instance, all have fractal properties.
This wand comes with its own FREE handmade pouch constructed of 100% polyester fleece and micro bonded suede that has the look and feel of real sheepskin. They are designed for a snug fit and come with extra padding to protect delicate tips and points.
This crystal has been cleaned with Universal Life Force Energy, and given an energy attunement using Reiki, a Japanese technique of energy healing, so it will continue to receive and transmit Universal Life Force Energy direct from the Source of Creation. It has also been cleaned and charged with the natural energy of sunlight. It is ready for you to program according to your own needs and desires.
